Captain Robert Falcon Scott's Polar Expedition ship, the “RRS Discovery”, was the first ship used for the 'Discovery Investigations'. It was the last wooden-hulled, three-masted barque built in Great Britain . It was launched at the Firth of Tay on 21 March 1901 and is currently a museum ship in Dundee, Scotland.... The Space Shuttle 'Discovery' was named after her.

Wrecked in a storm off Cape Cod in 1717, the Whydah is the only pirate shipwreck ever found, and her treasures are still being archaeologically recovered. With the discovery of over two hundred thousand artifacts – including sixty cannon, over ten thousand coins, 400 pieces of Akan gold jewelry, and much more – our project has completely revised the world’s understanding of pirates.
